Taradale is a tiny community, about 45 mins drive from my house, on the old Calder Highway, between Bendigo and Melbourne. Being off the Freeway, I had never been there at all until today.

We started the day off with energy and enthusiasm to burn which held us in good stead for what was to come. The meeting place was at the Quarantine Station at […]
Today I am so pleased to announced that Brenda Austin is my guest poster. I’ve been following Brenda on Facebook and Instagram for a while now. I first came across her in her role as Ambassador for Maxine’s Challenge. I find Brenda just so inspiring, as she is almost 70 years old, and still works […]
